Today our boy is five months old, so I’m officially a month behind. Here he is at four months. Don’t you just want to squeeze him? A random lady at the Texas State Fair asked how many tickets it would cost to take a bite of those baby thighs. I was a bit creeped out, but still flattered.
Fisher is growing and changing and doing new things every day. He is laughing and really responding to us now. He discovered his feet and likes to chew on his toes. He has started soothing himself by sucking on his thumbs and sometimes his whole hand.
At his four month check up he weighed 18.2 pounds, putting him in the 95 percentile for weight. We’ve come a long way since our breastfeeding crisis at 2 weeks old. He is still exclusively breastfeeding and I would say it is working pretty well.
His eyes are still blue with hints of grey and green. As a brown eyed girl married to a blue eyed boy, I hope his eyes stay blue like his daddy’s.
He is losing his soft baby hair and has a wicked mullet developing in the back. It is still super cute. New hair is starting to come in on top and I think it looks a lot lighter. His daddy and I were both blonde as kids (Jed still is) so I wouldn’t be surprised if it turns a lot lighter.
At his check up he measured at 25 1/4 inches long, in the 75 percentile. He also measured off the charts for cuteness.
He has started really grabbing things this month, so we are having to be more careful. He likes holding on to his toys and then putting them straight in his mouth. I bought him an exersaucer (we call it his office) at a consignment sale, and he loves it. I bring it into the kitchen while I’m cooking and he plays happily. He is also loving his Bumbo chair right now.
